    Hi,

    I'm sure I read it yesterday but I can't seem to find where but am I to understand that the 1tb upgrade option in the 15'' mbp retina (late 2013) is much faster than the 512gb variant?

    Would be great if reviews highlighted it!

    thanks!
    Anthony

    that's quite an impressive upgrade. That's almost 1tb/s in speed

    Almost 1GB/s not 1TB/s, that would be amazing.

    I'm on a dell laptop - until next Thursday. I think my HD is either on 5400 or 7200 - is there a utility I can use to test the speed of my laptop or are there numbers out there.

    Just want to gloat, that's all.

    yes I got over 1000 MB/s fresh out of the box before I set up the computer. Now after loading 465GB of data and apps from my Time Machine backup, speeds are around 960MB/s

    2.6GHz 16GB RAM 1TB SSD base model

    I think I would be crying at what the price would be if it was actually 1tb/s :D

    Like stated above amost 1GB/s which is still increadably fast. That means it would take 1 second to move a tv show or maybe a couple seconds to move a big recoreded video file.

    I guess I'll find out soon enough, my 13" 1TB gets here Wednesday.

    Worst case is that the data speeds are the same as the 512 but I get twice the storage which is really my main reason for moving to it. That's kind of the problem with these releases, lots of review attention is placed on the 15" so it will take a bit more time for all the models and configurations to get a fair shake.

    Post your speeds if you can when you get your computer. I'd hope they're the same as the 15".

    I've the 2.6/8/512 in 13" and i'd be curious to see how vastly it differs from your 1 TB.

    Do post it once you get a chance.

    Well be sure to let us know. Yeah, the 13" gets less attention than the 15", but for my uses it's the superior model.

    Will do on the speed test folks!

    In the meantime, if another 13" 1TB owner wants to post a Black Magic disk test, several folks are interested in what you find...

    Thanks!

    So it looks like the 9-5 Mac article needs to be adjusted, either the 13" has 4 lane PCIe or......?

    Edit 11/05/13: I got my 1TB rMBP today, over 1,000 on fresh start up, 965 write / 928 read, sweet!
